> * That the old ticket repo be put in read-only mode. I've just modified the old #16344, but I should have modified the new one.
That is tracked https://gitlab.haskell.org/bgamari/gitlab-migration/issues/14
It seems that there are still some problems to iron out though.
> * Back on the tickets front, how do I record the test cases(s) for a ticket?
I don't believe there is a way other than via the commit referencing the ticket.
> * How do I record the MR for a ticket? (When it has one.)
When you mention a ticket in a MR then a reference should be created
from it to the ticket.
For example, when I mentioned !509 on this ticket it now displays in
the UI. https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/issues/16417
> * That the banner (on the wiki at least) saying "This site has been deprecated and is in read-only mode" should describe how to get to the corresponding URL on the new wiki. Eg. say "If you are trying to access https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/<page>, the new URL is "https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/<page>".
> * Where has https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/RichardAndSimon gone? The corresponding URL on the new wiki doesn't exist.
The page is now located at:
> * How can I list the title index on the new wiki?
An automatically generated index is available here
I believe the intention is to automatically update this with a cronjob.
> * I have lots of pages like this one https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/proposal/custom-type-errors that list the tickets relevant to a particular keyword. (Now "label" I think?) But tat page is now lying: it claims to list current open tickets, but actually it's a frozen snapshot. What should I do?
Gitlab Wiki does not support this feature so you have to refer to a
For example: https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/issues?label_name%5B%5D=ApplicativeDo
However, it seems that the `CustomTypeErrors` label was lost during
the migration. Do you know why this is Tobias/Ben? It looks like it
will have to be added back manually.
